The President's Message:
Welcome to the Churchville Photography Club’s website. I encourage you to stop in at a meeting and check out what this club can do for you as a member for this upcoming 2019 / 2020 club year. You can enjoy the programs of our talented guest speakers, enter a club contest with your own images or submit an image for a constructive critique by a respected photographer. One of our meetings is a hands-on workshop. Bring in your camera and try some new techniques at different stations manned by members who will help you experiment. Two of our meetings during the club year are what we call “Fifteen Minutes of Fame” where selected club members show the club a sampling of their work.
President's Message continued...
We have a covered dish Social on Monday, September 16th at 7 pm which kicks off the club year. Bring some food or goodies to eat and share. Get to know our talented and helpful members in a very informal setting. After eating, we kick back and watch digital images from members who show us “What I Did on Summer Vacation”. We also have a Holiday Social on December 16th to get into the proper spirit.
Several times during the club year, members may sponsor a field trip (usually on a weekend day) where club members can meet up, drive to a pre-planned location of photographic interest and shoot away. Great way to pick up some tips from our more experienced members. We also have a fun Scavenger Hunt in the spring where members can form teams to photographically compete against one another.
The Interclub Contest, held in the spring, pits our club and several area photo clubs against each other for the Interclub Trophy and bragging rights for the next year for having the best images. We also usually host our Annual Contest at the Churchville Nature Center where we encourage surrounding communities to shoot and submit images for judging.
After being a member of this club for over 20 years, I have found that the warmth of the membership and their willingness to share their knowledge makes this club special. Stop by and introduce yourself. See you at the meetings.
